CyanogenMod brings stock Android Gingerbread to HTC EVO 3D

Cyanogenmod-logo2

The long wait is finally over: CyanogenMod 7 is finally available for the HTC EVO 3D.

Now before you get too excited, keep in mind that this is an early alpha build, which means that not everything is working yet, and there are bugs. Additionally, this build is only available for the CDMA version of the EVO 3D on Sprint.

Known issues include broken bluetooth and WiMAX, a security issue with Netflix, an oversized stock keyboard, an inability to shoot 3D pictures and video, 3D pictures displaying in 2D, and an innacurate battery gauge that seems to get stuck at 90 percent.

Some users on xda-developers are also reporting an isolated issue in which the home button is not working until Google apps (such as Gmail, Maps, etc.) are flashed via a separate .zip file, although this does not appear widespread. Additionally, one user reported being able to connect to WiMAX for about 30 seconds before the connection dropped, even though WiMAX is supposedly not working at all yet. As with all ROMs that are not even in beta yet, your miles may vary.

Downloads and full instructions can be found at the link below. Happy flashing, and enjoy your stock and (largely) unalterated/enhanced Gingerbread experience!

[CyanogenMod] Thanks, Justin!
